Women's Baseball History

A solid all-around athlete, Betty McKenna played for three different teams in her rookie season (1951) in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League - batting .151 in 61 games, including 6 doubles and one triple.

After playing with Battle Creek in 1952, she moved with the team after they relocated to the Muskegon Belles prior to the '53 season. Still only 22-years old, Mac took over the full time role at third base, and blossomed into one of the better players at the hot-corner in the AAGPBL. She hit a solid .215 in 94 games, and lined 8 Ds, 1 Ts, scored 31 runs, had 28 RBIs, and stole a career-high 16 bases.

She was becoming a full-pledged star player... however the womens baseball league folded after that season - 1953. - All-American Women Archives
